FocusWriter is a fullscreen, distraction-free word processor designed to immerse you as much as possible in your work. The program autosaves your progress, and reloads the last files you had open to make it easy to jump back in during your next writing session, and has many other features that make it such that only one thing matters: your writing.

App Notes

Two Versions - The current FocusWriter build which only runs on Windows 11 or Windows 10 64-bit is included alongside the legacy 1.6.16 version which works on Windows 7/8/8.1 and Windows 10 32-bit.
